He is happy and content, until the driver hits a pothole and the aquarium is thrown from the car. It hits the road and breaks and the hot sun quickly evaporates all the water. The people in the car take no notice that they have lost a member of the family and continue driving away. The lizard is now faced with survival. He is in a new place and completely alone.
